We just finished a bottle of Asti Spumanti with our shrimp, oysters, and fresh bread. Now the memsahib has a snifter of ginger brandy (she's on this ginger kick lately) and I have a glass of UJSM & soda. Oops, she just headed over to the bar for a refill... we probably won't make it to midnight again this year.

For New Years Day, we always have ham and beans.

Happy New year, everyone!

Drank my entire life's ration of Asti Spumante in one night back in 1975. Have not been tempted by it ever since.

Tonight I'm working on a bottle that a client gave me as a thank you for getting her through a rough patch this year: Grand Marnier Cuvee Speciale Cent Cinquantenaire. Got some Cubans to light up at midnight too. New Years Eve is about quality not quantity. (IMHO)

Blackeyed peas are soaking, collard greens have been picked, and ham is going on the slow smoker in a few hours.

Well have 4 different jugs of sweet feed each oaked with different types of toasted wood (American, Hungarian, French oak) and one with some Barrel Mill spirals. I took a sampling from each, blended together and diluted to 46%. They have about 5 months on each of them. I am enjoying that now with a cigar while I listen to artillary fire (I mean fireworks) in the distance.

Me and deathwish distilled a wine that he had in a carboy for three years. We thought it was ruined. The brandy was excellent clear.
I gave a liter of it to another friend distiller with an oak stick in it back on March 10, 2012. He brought it back to me and said "Happy new year, This is the best I have I hope you enjoy it" it is nearly 10 months on oak and very nice.
Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.

We had a crawfish boil last night + steak and shrimp,
desserts galore.
Friends and family altogether!
Vodka and Cranberry was the drink of the night.

Sauerkraut and pork, mashed potates and all the fixins today!
Gin and tonic today :D


I will take a ride on my scooter today, probably pretty short due
to the cold/snow, but I'll be out there.
I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good
as they're going to feel all day.

Good fortune takes preparation.
